How about: Hack Wilson's record of 190 rbi's in 1930 was broken by Hack WIlson with 191 in 1999. Is that cheating?

Ha, for the win.

 

 

 

That is what the calendar actually says:

 

Slugger Hack Wilson of the Cubs set a record of 190 RBIs in 1930 which stood until 1999, when it was broken by Hack Wilson.  A long-lost extra RBI had been found by Cooperstown researcher Cliff Kachline, and later verified by MLB historian Jerome Holtzman.  Wilson is now credited with a record 191 RBIs that year.

 

 

Aw, I'll call bullshit.  The record wasn't "broken".  It was just re-certified, or re-set.

 

Fucking calendar.  This shit didn't happen when Phil was here.

 

 

Yea, Phil kept that calendar in line.

Phil is a little preoccupied at the moment.

First off, I’d like to thank Fishin Phil, whom I really admire … especially for staying on this Summer, and signing a really strong draft class … I hope I can demonstrate that same class and loyalty.”

 

I believe we can preserve the things that make the Calendar special … and build a solid foundation that delivers sustained success.

It was right before me and I didn't see it.  Another partially correct answer.  MFer.

 

But you had RBI are the devil, that answer is wholly correct, so it has to be at least a whole point.

The calendar is not linear. Oh wait....

Geez, I wonder if tomorrow's calendar Fact-turned-into-a-trivia-question will generate this kind of hatred.

Hatred is way too strong of a word. I would view it more as ambiguity.

If it's really convoluted like today's was, just keep it a fact. That's what Phil did.
